ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The Oneida Indians say they will offer sports betting on their central New York land in the wake of a new U.S. Supreme Court decision.

The Oneida Indian Nation made the announcement Monday shortly after justices struck down a federal law that largely forbade state-authorized sports gambling.

The Oneidas say they have been making preparations to offer sports betting at venues on the Oneida reservation in anticipation of the court ruling. They plan to offer sports betting soon.

The Oneidas say the 1993 compact with New York that cleared the way for their Turning Stone casino in Verona allows them offer any game that is permitted in the state.

The tribe this year opened its third casino in central New York.

Joel Barkin, vice president of communications for the Oneida Indian Nation, sent out the following statement on Monday:

"The 1993 Nation-State Gaming Compact authorizes the Oneida Indian Nation to adopt any gaming specification that is permitted in New York, without any further approvals by the State. The Nation previously has adopted numerous games under this provision, and the Nation now will adopt sports betting too. In anticipation of today's ruling, the Nation has made preparations to offer sports betting at venues throughout the Oneida reservation, and we will be putting those plans into operation in the near future. We anticipate that sports betting at the Nation will create numerous new job opportunities at each of our casinos. The Nation is proud of its track record of success in managing these kind of new opportunities and using new revenues to invest in Central New York.”
